of mitch mcconnell you played, that doesn't sound either correct or at all like he's in a compromise control. . >> the president said a good compromise always means that no one walks away with the most optimal deal. everybody has to leave something at the table. kristen, as jared points out the comments that are coming from the right, there's also criticism received from the left about this, but more specifically, this morning on "morning joe," congressman paul ryan said the devil is in the details, so what do you think it's going to be like that this thing is going to travel at a wider ripple through washington to get to both sides. >> reporter: there have already been protests outside of the white house, we saw a number of people gathering here yesterday, protesting the changed cpi, the fact that the president is putting that on the table. so it's going to be tough for him to get his base on board with some of the pthe -- what else will he be able to give as the negotiations actually get start. we can tell you that the president is going to be having dinner tonight with some of the

't provoked by the president or any white house staff. republican leader mitch mcconnell announced monday he plans to join the 13 other republicans who have promised to block consideration of gun legislation. his office said in a statement, quote, while nobody knows yet what senator reid's plan is for the gun bill if he chooses to file cloture on the motion to proceed to the reid bill senator mcconnell will oppose cloture on proceeding to that bill. cloture of course the fancy name here and that filibuster is being used. mcconnell is trying to avoid a primary in 2014, clearly playing the role not of mitch mcconnell senate republican leader but mitch mcconnell republican candidate for re-election in 2014. by the way, we just found out, heritage action america, not technically jim demint's group, he runs the other half of heritage but they're spiritually the cousin organization if you will or sister organizations but heritage action claims to score the procedural vote. it's unlikely many republicans will feel comfortable doing this if they want to have that show up on their score card so we'll

factor. one of the most powerful republicans in washington, senate minority leader mitch mcconnell, is under fire for discussing dirty tricks against actress and activist ashley judd. he and his campaign staff were caught on tape talking about a smear campaign against judd in case she decided to run against him. it's a new low for the man who vowed to make president obama a one-term president. who's now leading a filibuster effort against gun reform. these tapes peel back the curtain, giving us an inside look at the ugly tactics he was considering because his poll numbers were so low. and he was so desperate to keep his job. mother jones published the secret recordings of a strategy meeting that mcconnell's team held in february. on the tape you can hear them going after ashley judd on her values, on her religion. and even on her mental health. >> she's clearly -- this sounds extreme. but she is emotionally unbalanced. i mean, it's been documented. jesse can go in chapter and verse from her autobiography about, you know, she suffered some suicidal tendencies. >> emotional unbalance
